Latest Shielding Advice - GOV.UK

Click here to see OFFICIAL Government advice on shielding and protecting vulnerable people.

From 1 August, you will no longer need to shield, and the advice will be that you can visit shops and places of worship, but you should continue maintaining rigorous social distancing.

The guidance has now changed, so you can meet in groups of up to six people from outside your household. This should be done outdoors and you should maintain social distancing. 

For example, you might want to enjoy a summer BBQ outside at a friend’s house, but remember it is still important to maintain social distancing and you should not share items such as cups and plates.

If you live alone (or are a lone adult with dependent children under 18), you will be able to form a support bubble with another household.
